Default Belkin Bluetooth to 8700C - Can't get sync to work. . .

Checked the Microsoft supported Bluetooth list (which is VERY short) and bought a Belkin USB Adapter Model F8T012. Along with being supported by MS and having the designed for XP logo (doesn't say it WORKS with XP however) and it was the only one that showed a profile list on the back including "Sync" "File Transport" and "Serial Port". It says it is Bluetooth standard "Version 2.0 +EDR"

I went through pairing and a variety of the suggestions on various forums and, while I can get the Blackberry 8700C to audio connect to my Toshiba Satellite M45 notebook I haven't been able to come up with the right settings to enable Sync to work.

Is there a step-by-step process documented anywhere. I haven't been able to find one. Just suggestions in forum comments and those don't seem to work.

Any help greatly appreciated.
